Every time I am forced to put something in recycling, I think of how that actually means dumping it in my home region, SE Asia

The only reliable way to recycle is to eliminate plastic as far as possible.

Plastic recycling is a failed idea, and a pollutant of the developing world.

2023 is the warmest year in human history

We can now say this with complete certainty (barring an asteroid hitting in the final three weeks of 2023)

2023 has now had six record breaking months and two record breaking seasons (June-November).

My latest just out today in @sciencemagazine: "The costs of “costless” climate mitigation," joint with Matt Kotchen & James Rising.

IPCC, McKinsey, energy-systems models & climate-economic ones have quite a bit of disagreement around what it costs to cut emissions.

The biggest disagreement: how much of it is free, and what does "free" mean.

Or more to the point, what does it take to get the free stuff actually done. (Hint: It takes policy.)
#climate #economics

If you squint, you can see our main research question on the cover, right above the tall penguin: "How costly, or costless is climate emissions mitigation?"
Comparison of global mitigation potentials at different costsThe IPCC results use different baseline emissions to calculate the range of mitigation potentials. The top panel reports the full set of results, and the bottom panel reports only the mitigation potentials with costs >$0 per tonne of CO2 equivalent (tCO2-eq). USD reported in 2020 dollars.

Egypt is struggling with water scarcity and shrinking arable land. Is soilless farming the answer?

It's expected to be categorised as water scarce by 2025, due to climate change and a dam recently built by Ethiopia on one of the main tributaries of the River Nile, Egypt’s main source of fresh water

Meanwhile, arable land, which constitutes less than 5 per cent of Egypt, has been shrinking due to urbanisation. The remaining 95 per cent is all desert

Saturday, 18 November 2023, was a day that will be remembered in history — if, that is, any historians are still around a hundred years from now.

On Saturday, two days ago, the average global temperature reached 2.0° Celsius above the pre-industrial baseline for the first time ever.

This year, 2023, almost certainly will be the first full year with temperatures averaging over 1.5°C, and next year could be even hotter. Most climate experts predict (and hope) that when the current El Niño pattern recedes, global temperatures will cool down a bit and we should experience a few years below 1.5°C. It is possible, however, that other feedbacks might kick in and keep temperatures climbing. We'll just have to wait and see.

But meanwhile, it's Business As Usual! 😃

Line graph showing global daily temperature anomalies from 1940 through 2023, as compared to the 1850 to 1900 baseline. On Saturday, 18 November 2023, the temperature reached 2.007°C above the baseline. This is the first time 2C has ever been exceeded.

“According to a new paper by scientists from a dozen institutions, the world's average temperature will surpass 1.5°C above preindustrial times within the next several years—much faster than most existing forecasts. The study goes on to say that without extreme action by the international community, temperatures will reach 2°C above preindustrial levels before 2050—also faster than most predictions.” #climatechange #climate #climatecrisis

Thanks to human-caused climate change, thanks to the continuous suicidal burning of fossil fuels, and also thanks to the current El Niño phenomenon, our oceans are heating up dangerously fast.

A few days ago (3 Nov), the global sea surface temperature anomaly reached a new record high of almost six standard deviations. For the mathematicians among us, that actual figure was 5.94σ.

According to Prof. Eliot Jacobson, who prepared the graphs below, no other day in any year has ever come close to this anomaly.

🚨 We are in a climate emergency. 🚨

#Science #Environment #Climate #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency

Line graph shows global sea surface temperatures for every day from 1982 through 2023. Each line shows the standard deviation from the 1982 through 2011 mean temperature. The  dark red line for 2023 has been far above any ever previously recorded since early this year.
Bar graph shows that the standard deviation in global sea surface temperature from the 1982 to 2011 mean was is the highest ever recorded on November 3, 2023.

Exceptional October temperatures!

The anomaly for October 2023 (departure from average temperatures) is

the second largest anomaly (after September 2023)

of any month

of any year

in the ERA dataset (back to 1940)

and combining with IPCC data - the warmest October for over 125,000 years (AR6 WG1: Fig2_11)

October 2023 was around 1.7ºC above the preindustrial average, making it virtually certain that 2023 will be the warmest year on record

Greta Thunberg says:

"Leaving capitalist consumerism and market economics as the dominant stewards of the only known civilization in the universe will most likely seem, in retrospect, to have been a terrible idea."

That's from page 202 in “The Climate Book.”

Greta Thunberg, wearing a blue t-shirt and a pink hoodie, looking at the camera during a meeting, seems to feel angry or unsatisfied.

Economists: climate impacts underestimated. “…the economist who has been embraced as a guiding light by the global institution tasked with shepherding humanity through the climate crisis…doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

And by "may have" we mean "has."
Climate change is accelerating.

"A hurricane gutted a city of one million, leaving no food or water and the dead to rot."

"One would think that an unprecedented category-five windstorm that flattened a resort city of one million people on Mexico’s Pacific coast might be mentioned at least below the fold of mainstream media cable and print outlets. In general, it has not."
